CATSHIT

Gumpang, Solo

A putrid smell greets my nose, and as I scanned to seek its’ source I found a brown disgusting mucky thick fluid on the carpet we all know to be cat’s dropping. It stinks, really, I could remember its’ vile smell even as I type these words. For all of you who keep your pets at home, something like this tends to happen. Hence comes the phrase: ‘shit happens!’ Read the rest of this entry »





Ruqyah, Islamic exorcism

Assalamu Alaikum,

 

Do you believe in black magic? From where I come from black magic is not an uncommon thing. You might not be superstitious and don’t believe in ghosts at all but it really exist and thus I’m interested in writing the types of black magic which are practiced by the so called dukuns (witch doctor) in the areas around Indonesia.

 

Back in Pakistan they call a witch doctor or magician a peer, with the incredible capability of cursing someone with spells and mantras or other sorts of Jadu. If you trace around the history of superstition, you would find that black magic or witch craft is spread worldwide. From the flying witches of Britian to the deadly voodoo magic of the Carribean and the Sadimistic Acrobats of India, magic has proven its existence and continue to awe those who believe in it and those who don’t.

Defining Beauty

Bismillahir Rahmaani Raheem

Verily, in the creation of the heavens and the earth and the difference of night and day are signs for men of understanding.

Life is a series of mishaps and adventures all eventually leading to one conclusion; death. Whatever happens after it depends on how we live in this world. So as long as I live, I’ll always try to appreciate and make the most of it whenever I can.

There are times when I set out intentionally to seek out the beauties in nature, looking out for views and sceneries which help me get clarity on life. To know the greatness of Allah you should ponder upon His creation. And there are countless times when I look at the sky and feel this sense of awe, humbleness and self-insignificance. Every time I look at the sky and ponder upon its creation, I reflect on the greatness of its Creator. The color of the sky is always perfect, be it in the early hours of dawn, in the last minutes of sunset or when the stars shine up upon us. Read the rest of this entry »

Ever since I was a kid I already developed the love of anything that has anything to do with speed: Jets, fast cars and Superbikes. It’s not till I reached 20 that I finally felt the true meaning of speed and its consequences. Read the rest of this entry »

Alternative therapy

With the progress of science, there are many ailments that could currently be treated with the latest technology and pharmaceutical products. But this doesn’t go cheap. Aside from the enormous amount of money we should spend, there are side effects to the treatments and drug consumption.

Take chemotherapy for instance. It is known to be effective in combating cancer and yet many of the chemotherapeutic drugs used today are cytotoxic (cell-killing) for both malignant and normal cells. As normal cells die off, unpleasant side effects commonly result. Read the rest of this entry »

Assalamu Alaikum,

All righty, to all ya folks out there. I’d like to dedicate this personal Blog of mine to my dearest cousin Kak Diella. if it wasn’t for her persistent suggestion i wouldn’t  have got the  spirit to start this.

Blog is a new culture for me, and frankly i seldom read other peoples blogs unless it’s really interesting. so if you find this blog uninteresting and not worth your time, get the hell out of here! On the other hand, if it’s okay for you, then a little comment wouldn’t hurt. Especially if it’s filled with positive criticism.

Allah Willing, I’d be starting my posts soon. Most of it is just some daily diary stuff, some of it from my journals on my petty travels. I hope that you guys can enjoy it. I know i do in the process of making ‘em.

That’s it for now. Catch y’all later.

Ichsan Rahmany
